Our aim is to operate a 100% carbon neutral and environmentally efficient
service for our customers
Our aim is to operate a 100% carbon neutral and environmentally efficient service for our customers. We plan to achieve this through a combination of investment in efficient machinery, effective environmental management systems, waste capture and recycling and the use of sustainable power generation.
Smart have invested in state of the art extrusion equipment. We operate one 8” 2,200 tonne and one 8” 2,500 tonne extrusion press with a total capacity of 20,000 tonnes of extrusion per annum. Our extrusion presses utilise state of the art manufacturing software to minimise production waste, whilst maximising the efficient use of aluminium billets. 100% of waste aluminium from the extrusion process is captured and recycled into aluminium billets ready for production.
Our horizontal powder coating paint line is the most advanced of its kind in the UK with a production capacity of 200sq/m per hour. We are able to offer a range of standard and non-standard finishes including RAL, metallic and our own Sensations range of textured finishes.
As an ISO 14001 company, we take the recycling and reduction of waste material very seriously. It is our policy to undertake a regular review process to monitor and identify possible sources of waste material and then put into place systems to capture and recycle where possible.
Smart operates an extensive waste capture & recycling policy for the following materials used in production and packaging:
